Introduction
Hi! I am a graduate student pursuing a joint Doctoral degree in Physics and Chemistry at the University of Aveiro (Portugal) and São Paulo State University (Brazil), respectively. I am a chemist with a research background in nanoparticle synthesis, molecular biology, and lanthanide spectroscopy. My current research work focuses on using luminescent nanoparticles for measuring temperature through luminescence nanothermometry.

Article
Full-text available
The application of nanoparticles in the biological context generally requires their dispersion in aqueous media. In this sense, luminescent nanoparticles are an excellent choice for minimally invasive imaging and local temperature sensing (nanothermometry). For these applications, nanoparticles must operate in the physiological temperature range (2...

Sustainable QR Codes In article number 2100227, Sidney J. L. Ribeiro, Luís D. Carlos, and co‐workers demonstrate how to design sustainable QR codes by combining recycled plastic and upconverting nanoparticles. The photothermal response of the QR codes under distinct laser irradiation power densities induces color‐tuning and temperature sensing, whi...

Quick-response (QR) codes are gaining much consideration in recent years due to their simple and fast readability compared with conventional barcodes. QR codes provide increased storage capacity and safer access to information, fostering the development of optical or printed smart tags as preferred tools for the Internet of Things (IoT). Herein, th...

Luminescence Nanothermometry Selecting green fluorescent protein and Ag2S nanocrystals as illustrative multiparametric thermographic phosphors, in article number 2100301, Luís D. Carlos and co-workers demonstrate that the synergy between multiparametric readouts and multiple linear regression makes possible a 10-fold improvement in the performance...
Article
Luminescence thermometry has substantially progressed in the last decade, rapidly approaching the performance of concurrent technologies. Performance is usually assessed through the relative thermal sensitivity, Sr, and temperature uncertainty, δT. Until now, the state‐of‐the‐art values at ambient conditions do not exceed maximum Sr of 12.5% K−1 an...

Photonic materials featuring simultaneous iridescence and light emission are an attractive alternative for designing novel optical devices. The luminescence study of a new optical material that integrates light emission and iridescence through liquid crystal self-assembly of cellulose nanocrystal-template silica approach is herein presented. These...
Article
Bacterial cellulose (BC) is a biocompatible and nontoxic biopolymer that has been successfully used as a substrate for flexible organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). Although BC membranes exhibit excellent mechanical properties and industrial scalability, they are semitransparent, which limits their performance. To improve the optical properties o...
Article
Liquid water, despite its simple molecular structure, remains one of the most fascinating and complex substances. Most notably, many questions continue to exist regarding phase transitions and anomalous properties of water, which are subtle to observe experimentally. Here, we report a sharp transition in water at 330 K unveiled through experimental...

Mesoporous silica nanoparticles prepared by organic template-driven synthesis have been successfully explored as carriers of the drug-derivate green luminescent complex of terbium (III) with the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug ketoprofen. The terbium (III) complex was synthesized by reacting ketoprofen sodium salt with terbium (III) chloride, w...
Article
The combination of cellulosic materials and clays, such as Laponite, can provide composites with superior optical and mechanical properties compared to pristine cellulose. Synthetic clays can also be used as a host matrix for the immobilization of luminescent complexes, as the incorporated complexes may present enhanced emission quantum efficiency,...
